This week’s webcomic is Nimona by Noelle Stevenson.
What’s the Deal?: Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain who lives by a strict code of conduct and ethics. His new shapeshifting sidekick, Nimona, has a new set of ideas of her own on how a supervillain is supposed to act. It is important to note that this includes many explosions and potential death of innocents. Ballister attempts to curb Nimona’s “enthusiasm” but finds with the current political climate, coupled with Nimona’s resolve, he might just want to retire from the supervillain business altogether.
The Characters: Lord Ballister is the most endearing and sympathetic villain you’ll ever read about, and his sidekick Nimona adds all the spicy and malicious intent to make the story juicy. Together, they are a potent mix, and with reoccurring appearances from Ballister’s arch-nemesis Goldenloin, you are sure to laugh at this crew of characters.
The Art: The art is gorgeous, with a distinct color palette and art style. The full color panels are easy on the eyes for sure.
Safe for Work?: Yes.
